Friday was a loooong but exciting day for me! We didn’t have school today, so me and my friends got up early to help decorate for the football game. We basically just put orange and black decorations all over the bleachers and around the football field. And after a while when we got tired of decorating we were just hanging out and laying on the tracks, haha 😛
After that, we went to a beauty salon and got a pedicure. It was my first time getting one, and it tickled so bad, haha! (Kailena and my host mom Jamie in the picture to the left, Ellie and Carmella in the picture to the right)
I also had drivers ed today, and this time I wasn’t hit by anything haha! After my drive I went back to my house and got ready for the game. One of my best friends here, Dennis, is a football player and wanted me to support him a little extra at the homecoming game, so I put his number (#60) on my cheek.
The game was AMAZING! Cashmere won. They also announced the homecoming king and queen at the game, and Dennis won 🙂
pToday’s theme was extreme orange and black (cashmere’s school colors!). I will show you pictures of our crazy outfits, haha!
At the end of the school day we had a pep-assembly where the whole school walked in a parade from the high school to “downtown” cashmere.
Then just some other pictures of me and my friends!
we decorated for homecoming after school. The homecoming dance is on saturday and the theme is “tropic like its hot” hahahha! I am very happy with the decorations, it looks amazing! But you guys have to wait ’til sunday to see pictures 🙂
Todays theme was Western. It was a lot of fun for me to dress up as a cowgirl since its so different from what I would wear on a regular day.
Me and Peyton (Junior) on the left. Paola, Me, Hannah, Emily (all Seniors) on the right.
The second (and last) part of the talent show was today. It was just as good as yesterday. We also played dodgeball at lunch again, but this time against the Sophmores. I think I forgot to mention that we lost the game yesterday against the Juniors, but we won today so we ended up in third place! This was the first time the Senior didn’t get last place, so I’m proud, haha!
Tomorrow (thursday) is the last day of the spirit week since we don’t have school on friday. So the theme for tomorrow is Black and orange. Black and orange are our school colors if you didn’t know that! 🙂
Todays theme was Twin Day. Paola was my partner for the day. The whole point of it was to wear the same outfit, and I have to say, me and Paola did a great job! We even had matching coffee mugs! (and yes, I know I hated coffee before I moved to America, but I am ADDICTED now. It’s soooo good)
The first part of the talent show was today, and it was so much fun to watch! My school is seriously the best school with the best people. Just the way that the students supported each other and cheered for one another was amazing to me. I am so happy to be a part of Cashmere High School! All the performances were great!
We have a lot of difference activities this week where each grade can earn points, and the grade with the highest amount of points at the end of the week will win (I heard that they will get free pizza, but I’m not sure if that’s true or not :P). The seniors (my grade) is currently in last place… hehe! Everyday at lunch we have a dodgeball tournament, and today it was time for the Juniors and Seniors to play. I had never played dodgeball before and I had no idea what it was all about. I didn’t want to play at first, but after a lot of peer pressure from my Senior friends, I actually played… It was a lot of fun! If theres anything that I’ve learned in the last couple of months are that you should NEVER be afraid to try something new. I turned out to be really bad at dodgeball, but thats okay, because I tried it, I had fun, and got to know new people in my grade!
And as you probably saw in the title. I was in a car crash. I was hit by a truck. I am doing Drivers Ed here, so I was driving with the teacher. We exited the highway onto a very skinny bridge, and everything was fine until this big truck (who’s not even supposed o drive on that bridge, because the truck is too wide!) came towards me with haft of his truck on my side of the road. Since we were on a bridge we could move over or turn away from the truck, so I slammed on the brake and tried to avoid the truck as much as possible. The truck ran into the side of my car and the side mirror got all messed up! I’m still surprised that I managed to avoid a serious crash. No one got hurt, but the truck drove away without seeing if I was okay. The car is fine too. My teacher said that I did a good job and that I am a great driver! That accident was the trucks fault, I didn’t do anything wrong.
So mom, don’t worry, Im OKAY!!! haha 🙂
The first day of the homecoming week. We will have a different theme everyday and today was superhero day! I didn’t want to spend money on a REAL costume, so I took a piece a paper and drew the super man logo on it and taped it to my shirt. Cheap, easy and I got soooo many compliments on it. People found it hilarious… haha!
The homecoming game (football) will be this friday, and then the homecoming dance on saturday. I am sure this week is going to be amazing! And i can’t wait until the dance. Oh, for those of you who don´t know… I was asked to homecoming a few weeks ago by a guy named Corbin!
I know that I haven’t posted too much here on my blog, and I’m really sorry about that. I know that my friends and family have been wanting to see what I’m doing here in the states… Last week was a really bad week for me… I moved. Yes, I moved to a new host family. I don’t want to talk about what actually happened and the reason that I moved, all you guys have to know is that I’m okay and moved to an amazing host family. I couldn’t be happier! This is partly the reason why I haven’t really used my blog. I didn’t feel like I had anything to write about, and I just wasn’t as happy as I could have been. But that will change now, I promise!
